Jabberwocky AAC


Control your entire Android device with just head movement, facial gestures, and speech... and never touch the screen!


How do I touch the screen?

  • By default, opening your mouth performs a touch at the cursor location while closing your mouth lifts the touch. Opening and closing your mouth quickly simply taps the screen, while holding your mouth open allows you to perform complex scroll and swipe gestures. The cursor will change color to indicate an active touch. Additional facial gestures to interact with the device are coming soon!

How do I control the cursor?

  • The cursor is controlled through head movement, not eye gaze. Pointing your nose up and down will cause vertical cursor movement and turning your head right and left will cause horizontal cursor movement.

How do I enable or disable the cursor?

  • Shaking your head left to right, as if you were saying no, will disable the cursor. To re-enable the cursor shake your head again and wait for the countdown timer to reach 0. Disabling and enabling the cursor is especially helpful if you want to watch a video or talk without accidentally interacting with the device.

I have some mobility, can I still interact with the device normally?

  • Yes! Jabberwocky does not impact your ability to physically interact with the device if you so choose. Jabberwocky is meant to augment your existing motor and device interaction capabilities while obstructing as little of the device as possible.

How do I use voice functionality while Jabberwocky is on?

  • Currently, we advise disabling the cursor whenever you want to interact with your device using your voice by shaking your head. We are working hard on supporting different facial gestures and providing functionality to make this interaction even more seamless, stay tuned!

Help, it won't tap where I want!

  • The best advice for new users is to take your time and get used to moving the cursor to the four corners of screen first. Second, practice holding the cursor still, which is an important skill before performing a tap. Third, try opening and closing your mouth quickly when performing a tap. If the cursor moves too much or your mouth is open too long, Android will interpret the action as a swipe or long press respectively.
